Rooibos featured in articles in media
Two feature articles - one in West Coast Escape magazine and one in African Safaris - help to spread the story of Rooibos to both locals and visitors.
West Coast Escape: Rooibos, naturally
"Rooibos is one of the miracle plants of the world." This is how a 10-page feature article in West Coast Escape magazine (Issue 17) describes Rooibos. This article gives a comprehensive overview of Rooibos, referring to Swedish naturalist Carl Thunberg who in 1772 mentioned the "tasty, aromatic tea" that the local people made. The article also covers the production, health benefits and uses of Rooibos - the "red gold from the Cederberg".
African Safaris: Rooibos - a uniquely South African story
An article in African Safaris (Issue 34) traces the history of Rooibos from its humble beginnings to a product with growing global demand. According to the article, archaeological records show that Rooibos has been around for at least 60 000 years.
